6:15pm
>> upper 70s, lower 80s, s, that is bonus. we're not up around 86, 87, 88 where we would normally be. reagan. and to the east of us, these numbers are -- gaithersburg 75, and dulles 76, and the numbers for the week and the evening hours, and a few clouds, 70, and 76, 2009, 72, and it's at 11:00, and 69, now, sunday showers,owe, yes, but again, not for everybody, it does look like we will stay dry tomorrow. temperatures tomorrow comparable to today, we're not going to have quite as much shine early. i think we will have more cloudu tomorrow than what we had todayo it's going to be temperatures upper 70s to right around ou 80 degrees with just aboutt
6:16pm
everybody. here is what we hiccup a little bit, i think on sunday. su we're going to call for more clouds certainly, and there wili be some showers out there. we will have more clouds left sunshine, temperature will bellb cooler, probably lower 70s to mid-to upper 70s, depend, it it just dendz on exactly wher ex--t depends on where you are and ho much rain you're going to have.a here are the clouds on top of us now, but notice how the cloudse are on top of i-95, to the easte if you're west and northwest of i-95, you are pretty much goodch to go. go this evening with a lot of sunshine and we have had a lost sunshine today. that is really is where we're we going to be on sunday as thisis rain starts coming on in. you can see there's a lost raini now coming up through the carolinas, most of us aree staying central carolinas on off to east, and the beaches distant showers tonight and through theo weekend as well. depend we're talking about -- again we're talking about where
6:17pm
is it doin going to rain, and fr d.c. and to the west and t northwest.o we're talking about showery weather on sunday. so again, not an all day rouain, not even everybody gets wet. if you are east of i-95, out ou toward the beach and the shore,r and down toward southern maryland, i think it's more likely that you're going to be wet, most of the day at least a good chance of that coming up on sunday. okay. so if you look at this real closely right now, it will keep dc with showers and mostly dry. okay. maybe we pick up a quarter of an inch of rain and that is about it. the heavier amounts on off to east and the southeast and the reason this is kind of a tricky forecast on sunday, is because our forecast died and it's all over the place, some of it keeps it to the south and to the west. others of it brings it right on up i-95, fairly heavy, too, and then majority of the -- p consensus seems to be that itat will keep it farther to the ease anr d the southeast. southe
6:18pm
depend, we will dep go showery the corridor north and west.st tonight still cool, we will be e in the 60s, 64-degree in quantico. 67, and for tomorrow here is hos it shapes up, not bad, temperatures right up against,a, at 80 degrees or so. and when you think about whereou we shouldt be, upper 80s this0s time of year, this is all real, real good. and we have had enough sunshineh it looks like it's going to be a decent day. clouds tomorrow morning to start, but not bad. ba sun and clouds 75 degrees, and e it does look like as we progress through the day tomorrow, wemorw will have a little more on thern way of cloudiness, and a littlet less sunshine, but it does lookk like all things are pointing toward tomorrow being a dry day. 75 on sunday with some showers, a spotty thunderstorm on monday and tuesday, once you get through the weekend, you beginek to gradually get back to whereen we should be inac august, at let with the temperatures, tuesday
